FBI Informants In Activist Groups - The Eric McDavid Story.
Is the FBI infiltrating your group?
This is the story about how the FBI infiltrated activists groups and put several people in prison for more than 20 years for basically what amounts to Thoughtcrimes
Eric McDavid was arrested (along with Zachary Jenson and Lauren Weiner) on January 13, 2006, as part of the government's ongoing Green Scare
campaign. All three were charged with "Conspiracy to damage and destroy property by fire and an explosive." His arrest was the direct result of a government informant - known only as "Anna" - who spent a year and a half drawing him in and working with the FBI to fabricate a crime and implicate Eric in it. Anna was paid over $65,000 for her work with the FBI. Eric was imprisoned for what amounts to thought-crime - no actions were ever carried out, and Eric was charged with a single count of "conspiracy" - a powerful legal tool often used by the state to crush dissent.
Friends of Eric
present information about his case, which serves as a lens through which to study the basic concepts of entrapment, the use of informants, and government repression in general. Unfortunately, the use of these tools by the state is becoming more and more prevalent, and it's imperative that people understand how they work.
This effects ANYONE who protests the Government. This could happen to anyone of us, including YOU!
